Dizziness With Ms
See below: Make sure that dizziness is due to ms and not inner ear process. First step is prevention, use potent agent to control disorder. Vestibular rehab program with physical therapist can help. Some meds can control symptoms. Realize that ms pts have a higher frequency of migraine, and that a migraine complication of paroxysmal vertigo may be playing a role here.

I have hastimatos thyroiditis. I've been having symptoms like weak arms, legs, tingling feet-esp. After a shower, dizzy.. Worried about MS thanks to g?
Perhaps a thyroid : Issues could be due to hashimoto's or even the treatment for the thyroid. But maybe the warm water from the shower is uncovering some underlying demyelinated nerves and exacerbating underlying problems. Hard to say you do or do not have ms based on above, so see your doctor and decide if worthwhile to have a neurologist get involved. ...Read more
Relapses are confusing to understand! for vertigo and eye dizziness to be an MS relapse would it need to be constant? Mine is coming and going.
MS and relapses: A relapse is a distinct change in neurological symptoms lasting longer than 24 hrs, and separated from a prior event more than 30 days ago. The symptoms are usually progressive, and not fluctuating. The inconstancy you describe would be categorized as a pseudo-relapse, associated with infection or temperature elevation. Do you carry a diagnosis of ms? If so, you might need therapy. ...Read more
Toes get numb, vision blurred, I have 20/20 vision, very dizzy, disoriented, diabetes or ms, is on my mind. Help me please.
Painful achy legs & feet, sometimes arms. No swelling. Occasional numbness. Gastro problems. Fatigue. Increased anxiety. Dizzy. Could I have ms?
Sometimes when i stand up i get sudden pressure in my head, my heart beat is a little wonky and i feel dizzy. Could this by my ms?
Not necessarily.: Your description raises concern of possible postural blood pressure drop, which could be a medication adverse reaction, but also, associated with a migrainous phenomenon. I do not see a medication to control your ms, only the steroids, which i presume are being used for a relapse. Would suggest starting a potent ms agent soon, and supplementing vitamin d. Have your doc assess all mentioned. ...Read more
Positive for Epstein Barr virus, negative mri and neurological exam, numbness dizziness palps 7 months. Not ms?
No, but what is it?: I'd expect MS to have a positive MRI and neurologic findings. The question is what IS the cause. Most people have EBV in their bodies; it's unlikely to cause this. I would strongly consider other infections including Lyme, Babesia and Bartonella as well as toxins including lead, mercury, aluminum, glyphosate etc. See integrative Dr. and http://tinyurl.com/l9mpa2l and http://tinyurl.com/z6x8ozy ...Read more
Not the cause: Periodic elevation of blood sugar(hyperglycemia) won't cause dizziness. However severe prolonged hyperglycemia can cause dehydration and dizziness, metabolic imbalance and can be life threatening. But before this occurred you would experience increased urination and thirst. http://bit.ly/1hKZ4wy ...Read more
Not really : You more likely have migraine. Now, if you had ms, you would have twice the incidence of migraine as a non-ms patient, and with certain brainstem lesions, up to 4 times incidence of headaches. But if only the nausea, dizziness, and headaches, you probably do not have ms causing the problem. ...Read more
